Following a report last month detailing Rivian’s plans to construct a second, larger production facility east of Atlanta, Georgia, a new image has surfaced showing what the factory layout is expected to look like.
Rivian’s upcoming factory in Georgia is set to be five times larger than the company’s Normal manufacturing facility at around 20 million square feet, according to a post made on the Rivian Forums on Friday (via electrek).
The image of the proposed Rivian factory in Georgia also includes reference to a test track, an “adventure trail,” a delivery center, a logistics trailer lot, 144 spots for charging hardware and a number of other specialized areas.

Still, scaling production of electric vehicles (EVs) is incredibly tough, as evidenced by Tesla’s many years of losses, breaking even, then finally becoming profitable in 2019 and 2020.
Investment firm Morgan Stanley has called Rivian “the one” to challenge Tesla’s dominance, and if it can get its new factory built and begin posting gains over the next several years, it just may have a shot at doing so.
